About this Item

Quarto. xxiii, 364pp. Original three quarter leather over marbled boards with gilt ruling and lettering on spine; raised bands. Frontispiece chromolithograph with tissue guard. Based on an at the time unknown, 14th century manuscript from the imperial public library in St. Petersburg, purchased by Czar Alexander I. from the collector Peter Dubrowsky for the library. The provenance prior to Dubrowsky who obtained the manuscript at the time of the French revolution leads us to the Countess Margarete von Jülich and Berg in the 14th century and a Jesuit College in Münster, Germany, in the 17th century. Entitled "Carmina sacra italice, germanice, anglice," this manuscript contains actually chants in honor of the Virgin Mary in a mix of high German and Low German with Dutch influence while only the beginning is written alternately in German, French, English, and Latin. The introduction in fifteen verses is a linguistic unicum starting every verse with a few words from the Ave Maria. This is followed by six chants of 100 verses each, covering the complete biblical history. However, rather than a collection of Songs in honor of the Virgin Mary it has to be considered one structured poetic corpus. Following the introduction by Minzloff the complete text of the manuscript. Laid in a stack of 23 pages of a small tear-off calendar with handwritten notes on versos. Text in German. Some wear along edges, scuffing and small tears to leather binding. Starting at endpapers with an Ex Libris from the Torch Press Book Shop and handwritten names on it. Light age toning. Small dealer sticker on inside back cover. Binding and interior in overall good- condition. Bookseller Inventory # 37882
